CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - A new defense company is opening in Charleston to supply equipment to the Iraqis in their fight against ISIS.

The Post and Courier of Charleston reports (https://bit.ly/1RP8KTJ) that a grand opening ceremony is set Friday at Critical Solutions International’s headquarters in Berkeley County.

U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford plans to attend.

The company earlier this year received an almost $75 million contract to supply vehicle-mounted mine detectors to the Iraqi Ministry of Defense as part of that country’s fight against ISIS and other terror groups.
